What a lovely little b&b, a stones throw away from the madness, but far enough so it's so quiet. Parking wasn't an issue like others have mentioned. The rooms are perfect enough for a small family, comfy beds, warm and dry. Only downside for me, and it's personal preference, feather pillows, my husband loved them though. The owner is lovely,...

Our hopes were high for our visit to the golden sands guest house in blackpool which had a rating of 4.6stars on hotels.com. However from the moment we drove onto the street where golden sands is located our enthusiasm levels dropped.

Dear Guest., Thank you for your comments. Pleased you enjoyed your Breakfast. We certainly did not see any food products when we left the room,and at that time you should have mentioned this matter to us. All rooms are hoovered and cleaned before arrival. Sylvia H.

The Golden Sands Guest House is situated a little away from the centre of Blackpool but within easy walking distance. I found the bedroom very comfortable and a decent size - it was also very clean. The bathroom was large with attractive modern décor, as with the bedroom it was immaculate in its cleanliness. Breakfast was served in a pleasant...

Golden Sands is the only place we'll stay when in Blackpool. Amazing staff, super friendly. Clean and comfortable. Wonderful breakfasts. Close to Illuminations, around halfway along the Mile, a street away from the main road so it's quieter. If we can't get a reservation here we change our holiday plans to a date when we can. We've stayed here several...
